Reception for non-Ukrainian refugees
Share this article
If you are a refugee from Ukraine, but do not have Ukrainian citizenship, you may be entitled to different reception than a refugee with Ukrainian citizenship.
Reception centre with Temporary Protection
If you do not have Ukrainian citizenship, you are entitled to a place in a Ukraine reception centre if:
You had a valid, permanent Ukrainian residence permit on 23 February 2022 and did not leave Ukraine before 27 November 2021 and did not return to your country of origin before 23 February 2022.
You were a refugee recognised by Ukraine on 23 February 2022.
You are the partner, a minor child or dependent relative of someone covered by the Temporary Protection Directive.
You were registered in the BRP before 19 July 2022. You are entitled to childcare in this case until 4 September 2023.
Reception centre without Temporary Protection
If you are not entitled to a place in a Ukraine reception centre, there are two things you can do:
If you are in danger in your home country, you can apply for asylum in Ter Apel.
If you can safely return to your country of origin, then you can return. If you cannot manage your trip back, contact DT&V or IOM.
Right to a reception centre, but refused or evicted from the reception centre
If you are entitled to a place at a municipal reception centre but were refused or evicted, please get in touch with a branch of VluchteligenWerk Nederland in your area. There people can help you check whether you are indeed entitled to a place at a reception centre and contact the municipality.
